Flooding and infrastructure redesign: The Meriden Green project is a showcase project that successfully addressed a century-old problem facing the City of Meriden who faced repeated flooding in their downtown area. The project team worked collaboratively with key stakeholders to work through the complexities of design and permitting of the 15 -acre project. The project has been described as one of the most complex regulatory permits ever approved through the State of Connecticut. As a recipient of a number of prestigious awards including the Water/Environment ‘Award of Merit’ from ENR New England, and the ACEC Top National Honor Award in 2018, the Meriden Green project was recently selected to be featured in a new book, Case Studies in Retrofitting Suburbia: Urban Design Strategies for Urgent Challenges by June Williamson and Ellen Dunham-Jones. The book is set to release in December of this year. To check out the article click here:
